2014 FIBA Champions – USA Women’s National Team

The USA Women’s National Basketball team beat Spain this weekend to win their second straight gold medal in the World Championships. Spain, expected to challenge the U.S., was routed  77-64.  Maya Moore led the charge with 18 points, enough to crown her the game’s MVP. But Sue Bird came away with the honor of being the most-decorated player in world championship history.

The USA owns a record eight gold medals, one silver and two bronze in Championship play since the formation of the Women’s National Team in 1995.  It has compiled an over-all 60-0 record, 52-0 in exhibition games and 8-0 in Olympic gold.  In 2012 the USA captured an unprecedented fifth-straight Olympic gold medal.  No other women’s traditional sports team has ever accomplished such a feat. Including FIBA Americas Championships and World Championships, the USA Women’s National Teams have compiled a remarkable 80-1 official record since 1996!  Congratulations, ladies!
